The HIV/AIDS epidemic has claimed millions of lives around the globe. More than 75,000 Canadians and 30,000 Ontarians currently live with HIV/AIDS. On World AIDS Day we recognize those who have died, we raise awareness about the virus and fight against the stigmatization of those who suffer with this horrible disease.
Globally there have been great strides in the both fight against the spread of HIV/AIDS and the care for the people who are infected with virus. People with HIV and AIDS now live longer and enjoy much improved quality of life than they did just a generation ago.
